FADE IN

EXT. Night, cool, crickets cherping. 

Scene opens with Kyle and Holley hiding behind some creates.  A large man appears and walks past them.  Kyle jumps up behind and puts a sleeper hold on him.  As he goes limp, Holley places handcuffs on him and tie wraps his legs.  Holley walks down and hears a thump in one of the crates.

HOLLEY

Kyle, it’s this one.

KYLE

Ok, give me a second.

 

Kyle finds a crow bar and opens the create.    Holley shines the light inside and there are 4 children inside.

HOLLEY

Are any of you named Charlene?

CHARLENE

I’m Charlene!

KYLE

We are here to get you home.

Kyle is dialing the phone.

KYLE (cont)

Walter, we have found Charlene and three more kids at the

ABC shipping company, dock 3. 

OK we will wait for you.

Holley had dialed the phone.

HOLLEY

Attention everyone, the child has been found.  Go home and get some rest.

As she hangs up police cars and ambulances pull into the drive.  Walter walks up.

KYLE

Hello Walter.

WALTER

Looks like a good night.

HOLLEY

Yes, be we found more than we were looking.

WALTER turns and yells out orders to the other policemen.

WALTER

I need ever crate checked here and every back room.

Scene fades out with the kids being taken to the ambulance, people scurrying around,                                                            Fade out.

She opens the door and outside is daughter’s boyfriend to pick her up on a date.

DAUGHTER

Hi Billy

BILLY

Hey Laura

FATHER

Invite him in Laura.

Daughter turns and looks disgusted.

LAURA

Would you like to come in for a minute?

BILLY

Well, just a minute.  We’ll be late for the show.

Billy walks in and is introduced to everyone.  Uncle and friend exchange glances.

BILLY

Well, it was nice meeting you all, but we have to go if we’re going to make the movie in time.

Mother

Oh, what movie are you going to see?

INT:  HOUSE

UNCLE

Well, we need to be leaving also. 

We have a date with a deck of cards.

FATHER

Ok Carl, but don’t lose too much this time.

EXT: NIGHT

They laugh and walk outside.  They get a good glimpse of Billy’s car as the couple drive off.

Carl (Uncle) and his friend walk over to his truck.  They get in and pull out.

CARL

Sam, no need to hurry.  We know where they will be.

SAM

OK, this better work.  You know this is the only way

you’ll ever be able to pay off your gambling debt.

EXT: CAMERA FOLLOWS

They drive to the drive-in and slowly make their way around looking for Billy’s car.  They spot his car two rows from the back.  They back in the middle spot right behind them.  They sit and wait.

INT: BILLY'S CAR

Scene change to inside Billy’s car.

Billy has his hands all over Laura and Laura is timid.  Laura starts to breath heavy as Billy kisses her on the neck. 

LAURA

Billy, you know I want to do this, just not here.

BILLY

Where would you like to go?

LAURA

Somewhere quite.

Billy pulls his hand out of Laura’s shirt and slips behind the wheel.  He starts the car and slowly pulls away.

INT. SAMS CAR

CARL

OK, there they go, let’s follow them.

EXT: CAMERA FOLLOWS SAMES CAR

Sam pulls out of the spot and leaves his lights off.  He waits until he sees them pull onto the highway.  He then pulls out and turns on his lights.  They follow at a distance and see them pull off the road by the lake.

INT: SAMS CAR

SAM

There they go.  That is a popular parking spot for the kids’ nowadays. 

I know another road that meets up with it.  Hold on.

EXT: CAMERA FOLLOWS BACK AND FORTH FROM SAMS CAR TO BILLY'S

They pass up the road and turn their lights off as they turn off the alternate road.  They ease up and can see the parking lights of Billy’s car.  Billy has removed Laura’s top and is taking off her skirt.  Carl and Sam have put on gloves and ski mask.  As Billy is about to pull down Laura’s panties, Laura arches her back to allow him then she sees two men in the window.  She screams as Billy’s door flies open.  Sam grabs Billy by the neck and pulls him out of the car.  He hits him on the head with a club.  Laura grabs her shirt and darts out the car.  Carl grabs her.  Laura bites him on the wrist and he turns loose.  She then kicks him in the groin. Laura turns and runs into the woods.  Carl and Sam chase after her.  After a few miles they stop.

CARL

Let’s get back to the truck.  I know where she’s going.

They run back to the truck.  They start it up and drive back to the house.

They pull into the drive next door.  Carl gets out and hides in the bushes.  A few minutes later, Laura comes stumbling up the drive.  As she gets to the door, Carl steps out and cups her mouth as he grabs her around the waist.  Sam grabs her legs and they take her to the truck, tie and gag her and take her off

SAM

I hope you don’t come to regret this. 

It could be detrimental to your health.

CARL

I make it a rule of life never to regret and never look back.

CAMERA CHANGES BACK AND FORTH FROM EXT. TO INT.

Laura is squirming and trying to scream as they drive.  They get to a very fancy house.  They drive around back.  Two men come out and carry her into the house.  Another man, dressed very well comes out and hands Sam an envelope with money in it.  Sam stuffs it in his coat.  Sam and Carl get into the truck and drive off.

INT. SAMS CAR

SAM

Alright, your bill is paid in full.

 Now the next time you get into trouble you may not have any leverage.

 It will be leg breaking time.  Do you understand me?

CARL

Yes, this will never happen again.

Sam pulls over to the side of the street.

SAM

Now get out.  I hope to never see you again.

EXT:  NIGHT

Carl steps out of the truck with a sad look on his face.  He walks down the street, around the corner and gets into his car.  He starts it and drives off.

INT:

Back at the house, they have taken Laura upstairs and a couple of women are hosing her down, cleaning her up.  A body guard watches.

LAURA

What are you doing?

BODYGUARD

Just keep your mouth shut and you will not be hurt.

Laura is scared and crying.  After the bath, the women dress her in a very nice evening gown.  Low cut, and a high slit up one side.  She is taken downstairs to a large drawing room where there are about thirty men in tuxedo’s sitting around the edge of the room.  Laura has now stopped crying and is escorted slowly around the room. 

ESCORT

You look very beautiful tonight.

  Just follow me and nothing will happen to you.

As they walk around, the men hold up numbers showing they are bidding on her.  After a while the bidding is over.  Laura is escorted back upstairs and is placed in a large bedroom.  She runs to the window, it opens.  However it has arched bars so there is no escape.  A few minutes later an older man walks into the room.  The room is locked.

MAN

Hello.  You can call me Tim.  We are going to have a nice time tonight.

 Now if you resist, I will ring this bell and the guards will come in and hold you down.

Laura doesn’t know what to do.  Tim comes over and gives her a drink.

TIM

Please drink all of it.  It will help you relax.

Laura takes a sip.

TIM(continued)

All of it, now!

Laura finishes off the drink.  The room becomes fuzzy and she drops the chalet.  Tim walks over and begins removing her dress.

                                                                                                                                                                                        FADE OUT.

FADE IN.

INT: Laura'S HOUSE, DAYBREAK

Morning: Mother walks down the hall notices daughter’s door is open.   She goes in and finds her bed is still made.  She runs down the hall to her room where the father is still sleeping.

MOTHER

Jim, Wake up.

JIM

What’s wrong?

MOTHER

Laura did not come home last night.

The father jumps out of bed and runs down to her room.  He notices his son staring at them.

SON

What’s wrong?

JIM

Your sister did not come home last night.   Do you know where she is?

SON

No, Sir.  The house has been quiet all night, except…

MOTHER

Except what?

SON

Well, about ten o’clock as I was going to bed, Spot started growling.

MOTHER

Oh my God.  She’s been kidnapped.

JIM

We don’t know that.  Get Billy’s number and call his parents.

 

Mother runs down stairs and looks up Billy’s number.  She dials franticly as Jim and son look on.

MOTHER

Yes, this is Laura’s mother.  Did Billy come home last night?

Mother turns to Jim,

MOTHER continued.

She is checking his room.

Yes, Oh no.  Billy is missing also.  You don’t think they eloped do you?

OK, please call the police and give them the make and licenses number of his car.

 We’ll call them also.

INT: LAURA'S HOME

Mother falls down crying. Father takes the phone and dials 911

JIM

Yes sir, I need to report a missing child.  Laura Childress.

  Yes, last seen at her home last night.

  She was seen with her boyfriend Billy Miner.  Yes thank you very much.

Jim hangs up the phone.

JIM continued

They are sending a car over to get the details.

                                                                                                                                                                                 FADE OUT.

COMMERCIALS

FADE IN:

 

EXT: MORNING

Car arrives.  Policeman knocks on the door.  Father answers the door.

JIM

Please come in.

INT: LAURA'S HOUSE

POLICE MAN

Yes, I am Officer Weaver.  I understand you have a teenage daughter missing.

JIM

Yes

OFFICER WEAVER

I need her age and a photograph of her I can keep to pass around.

Mother runs out of the room to get a photo.

JIM

She is seventeen.  She was picked up by Billy Minor for her date last night.

OFFICER WEAVER

Yes, we have that information and there is a car at Billy’s house investigating as we speak.

The mother comes back in with her high school picture.

MOTHER

Will you be able to find her?

OFFICER WEAVER

We will do our best, but in most cases the kids go out,

fall asleep and show up later on in the day. 

I have the number of a private detective that is very good

at locating and returning children.  Would you like his number?

JIM

Yes, Please.

OFFICER WEAVER

OK, I’ve got all I need; however we cannot do anything for 48 hours.

 Please give the detective agency a call.  They will get right on it.

The mother sits down on the couch and begins to cry.  The son sits with her not knowing what to do.

Jim, looking at the card, calls the number.

VERONICA

Tracers Detective Agency.  How may we help you?

JIM

Yes, this is Jim Wilson, We have a daughter missing.

VERONICA

Can I get an address?

Veronica jots down the information.

VERONICA continued

We will send someone right over.

JIM

Thank you so much.

Scene chane, Doorbell rings, Holley and Kyle are greeted.

KYLE

Yes I am Detective Kyle and this is my partner Holley please tell us what happened.

JIM

Our daughter went out on a date last night and never came home.

KYLE

Do you know the boy?

JIM

Yes, Billy Minor, and yes we have already called his parents.  He is missing also.

HOLLEY

Has she ever disappeared like this before?

MOTHER stops crying

No, she would never do anything like this.

KYLE

Do you have a make and model of the car?  Maybe a license number?

JIM
Yes, the Minors have given us the information.

 Here, I have already written it down for you.

Kyle takes the information; the mother has another picture and hands it to Holley.

HOLLEY

We will make some calls and look for the car.  All we can do is wait until some finds it.

MOTHER

Will you be able to help find her?

KYLE

You have contacted us early.  This gives us the best chance to find her.  We will keep in touch.

Kyle and Holly leave.  They go to the car and Kyle speed dials a number. 

KYLE

Everyone, this is Kyle and Holley.

 I need you to be on the lookout for a red 1999 Oldsmobile, license aaa2222

Call us if you see it.  Holley is texting you her picture now.

Kyle dials another number.

KYLE

Yes, Walter.  We have a missing girl.

  Yes, that is correct Laura Wilson.  So you know about her. 

Good.  Do you have any leads?  Me either.  Keep us posted as I will you.

 

Scene change, lakeside Billy’s car.

   Billy and his car are found by a fisherman.  Billy is still unconscious.  Fisherman calls police.

FISHERMAN(dials cell phone)

Yes, this is Scott Freeman. 

I’m out at Lake Worth and I have found a young man

that looks like he’s been hit in the head.

 Yes, South side off Plantation Road. 

Yes, it’s a red Oldsmobile, license plate aaa2222

Yes, I will stay here until someone arrives.

The police dispatcher  types in the information and calls out on the radio.

Detective Walter (Dials a number)

Kyle?  We’ve located the car.  We are in route to Lake Worth,

Plantation road.  The boy is there with a head wound.  The girl is still missing.

KYLE

I know where that is at.  We will meet you there.

KYLE dials a number

Yes Jim, the police have found the car, however, Billy has been found but Laura is still missing.

OK, I am on route and will let you know anything we find out.

 

The police show up with an ambulance.  He talks to the fisherman as they tend to Billy.  Another Policeman walks up.

POLICEMAN

Hi, I’m Officer Weaver.  Are you the person who found him?

FISHERMAN

Yes sir.  I was wading around the shoals when I could not go any farther. 

I walked up this trail to get around the rocks when I saw the car.  Both doors were open.

 

WALTER

Have you seen anyone else around?

 

FISHERMAN

No sir, just me.

Officer Weaver pulls a picture from his shirt pocket as Kyle and Holley Drive up.

WALTER

I don’t guess you have seen this girl have you?

FISHERMAN

No sir.  Only the boy.

KYLE

No sign of the girl?

WALTER

No, just Billy.  He seems to have a concussion but he’s still alive.

  It does look like they made it to the drive in.  The ticket is still on the windshield.

HOLLEY

When do you think we will be able to talk to him?

WALTER

Well that will be up to him when he wakes,

but you will need to ask permission of the parents.

KYLE

That won’t be a problem.

Kyle speed dials

KYLE

Attention everyone, we have found the car but no sign of the girl.

 Please keep an eye out for her.

Kyle hangs up and looks at Holley.

KYLE

Holley, please call Veronica and have her come down. 

I know the police are investigating, but maybe another pair of eyes will help.

HOLLY

On it.

Holley dials Tracers.

HOLLY

Yes, Veronica, get you kit and your butt down to Lake Worth, south side, Plantation road.

 We have a crime scene.  The police are here but we need another set of eyes. 

OK, we will wait until you get here.

A little while later Veronica arrives.  She follows behind the police investigator and takes her own pictures and notes.  Kyle and Holley watch.

VERONICA

The police have found two sets of footprints. 

I agree with them that it belongs to the perps. 

They parked there vehicle up the road there. 

According to the tire tracks they are Bridgestone 18in. 

These are common on trucks.  The police said the two men must

have grabbed her and taken her off to their vehicle.  But I disagree. 

One of the tracks beside Billy’s car has a deeper indent

like he may have picked her up.  But then I see a girl’s foot print

heading off into the woods.  I think she got away from them.

KYLE

Can we track her?

VERONICA

No, it has been too dry. 

I might be able to follow for a couple of hundred yards, but it will be difficult.

HOLLEY

I’d appreciate it if you’d give it a try.

KYLE

I’ll stay with you

Ambulance takes Billy to the hospital.  Holley goes back to the car and Kyle and Veronica head off into the woods.  They follow a few broken limbs; find a couple of Laura’s foot impressions. They then run out of leads.

VERONICA

Well, that is about it.

KYLE

Nothing else?

VERONICA

No, this is mostly grass.  It goes on for miles. 

We could go to the other side and try and pick up her trail, but it could take days.

KYLE

Wait a minute.  We are close to Red Robin Lane?

VERONICA

I think so.  According to my GPS it’s right over that hill.

KYLE

Laura’s house is only a few blocks from there.  Follow me.

Kyle and Veronica cross the field and go over the hill.   As they approach the road, Veronica starts looking again at the dirt beside the road.  They walk up the road and Veronica’s eyes open wildly.

VERONICA

Kyle look!  Here is her footprint again.

KYLE

Just as I thought.  She grew up in this area.  She is heading home.

Kyle dials

KYLE

Holley, go to Laura’s house.  We will meet you there.  No buts just go.

Kyle and Veronica get to Laura’s house as Holley drives up.  Veronica is looking all around the grass hoping to see something.

VERONICA

Kyle, I’m not sure but see the way the grass is twisted around right here?

  It looks like someone grabbed something heavy and twisted to carry it off.

KYLE

Look at this.  There are broken branches in the bushes right here also.

Jim hears the commotion and comes out on the porch.

JIM

What is going on?

KYLE

Jim, we have some news for you.  Please come here.

JIM

What is it?

KYLE

It looks like someone followed the couple to their parking place

and tried to kidnap Laura.  She got away and almost made it home. 

She got to right here where someone was waiting for her in the bushes. 

This means it was someone who knows her and knows where she lives.

JIM

Could it have been her school friends?

KYLE

I don’t know.

JIM

Oh my god.  My son said around ten o’clock last night his dog began growing.

HOLLEY

Did he notice anything else?

JIM

No, He just went to bed.

KYLE

I think someone that knows her followed her from the Drive in and

attacked her and Billy out at the lake.  She got away,

ran to the house where they were waiting on her.

JIM

I feel like a failure.

HOLLEY

Jim, you can’t protect your love ones one hundred percent of the time.

 All you can do is raise them and teach them well.

KYLE

And that is what you did.  She almost made it home.

HOLLEY

Let’s go to the hospital and check on Billy. 

Maybe he can shed some light on all this.

Kyle and Holley go to the hospital and see Billy in

his room still in a coma. A doctor walks out.

KYLE

Excuse me.   Are you the attending doctor?

DOCTOR

Yes, I’m Dr. Pepper.  How can I help you?

KYLE

We are working on a case where Billy Minor

was involved with a now missing girl.

 When would you think he may come out of his coma?

DOCTOR

We really can’t say.  It may be today, it could be a year from now.

  You really can’t tell about these things.

KYLE

OK, here is my card. 

To help us find this girl, would you please call me

and let me know when I can talk to him?

DOCTOR

Sure, Sure thing.

Kyle turns to Holley

KYLE

Looks like we’re at a dead end

HOLLEY

Any clues from the crime scene?

KYLE

None that Veronica hasn’t come up with

HOLLEY

Maybe we should start interviewing all Laura’s friends and Family.

KYLE

Good Idea.

Kyle calls Jim.

KYLE

Jim, I need a list of friends and family with phone numbers.

 Holley and I will be by in a few minutes to pick it up from you.

OK, By.

Holley and Kyle split up the list and each investigator goes to friend and family.  Scene shows Friends and family just shaking their head no.  (We could add some dialog to make it longer if necessary.)

Holley goes to Carl’s house, rings doorbell, Carl answers door.

CARL

Can I help you?

HOLLEY

I know that you know that your niece is missing.

CARL

Yea, but I haven’t seen her.

HOLLEY

Says here you saw her the night of the abduction.

CARL

Yes, But I have not seen her since.

HOLLEY

You were with a friend that night.  I need his name.

CARL

I, uh don’t think so.

HOLLEY

Would you rather talk to the police?

CARL

I’ve already talked to them.

HOLLEY

Would you like to talk to them again?

CARL

No, no, his name is Sam.

HOLLEY

Sam what?

CARL

I just know him as Sam.  I met him playing poker.

HOLLEY

How can we get hold of Sam?  I’d like to talk to him.

CARL

Uh, I don’t know and I need to go.

Carl slams the door on Holley.  Holley turns to walk away and calls Kyle.

HOLLEY

Kyle, I have a gut feeling her uncle Carl had something to do with it.

KYLE

Could you get him to talk?

HOLLEY

No, he just denied everything. 

There was a man with him that night. 

His name was Sam, but he would not tell me

what his last name was or how to get hold of him.

KYLE

Well, it might not do any good. But I’ll call Walter.

They hang up and Kyle dials Walter.

KYLE

Walter, Holley feels the uncle had something to do

with it the way he acted when she interviewed him.

WALTER

Did he make any comment that he did?

KYLE

No.

WALTER

Then there is nothing we can do. 

We cannot go on feelings or intuition.  Sorry Kyle.

 

KYLE

OK, we’ll keep looking.

Day 2.  Laura is seen in the bedroom.  Men are taking their turn with her.

DAY 3; Two men are talking. 

MAN1

OK, I’ve had her long enough.  I’m done with her. 

How about you buy her from me.

MAN2

Sure, but I’ll need her drugged up so I can take her home.

MAN1

Done.

Laura is seen being caring down the stairs to a waiting car.  Car drives to another location.  Man 2 takes her into a bedroom and ties her to the bed.  He undresses her and gets on top.  He finishes and calls some friends over.  They pay him as they go in and close the door.  Laura is awake and starts screaming.  The line continues.

Day 3. Doctor calls Kyle.

KYLE

Hello,

Yes DR.  Thank you very much.  We’ll be right over.

HOLLEY

Billy’s awake?

KYLE

Yes, let’s roll.

KYLE and Holley drive to the hospital.  They walk in and the parents are there, Walter is asking permission.

WALTER

Paul, May I have permission to talk to Billy?

PAUL

Billy, do you feel like talking to the police?

BILLY

Yes

WALTER

Billy, you know Laura is still missing.  Can you remember anything about that night?

BILLY

No, not much.  I shouldn’t have taken Laura to the lake.  I’m sorry.

Billy starts crying.

WALTER

Billy, it’s ok.  Please don’t worry.  We just need to see if we can find her.

Billy chokes back the sobs.

BILLY

We were just going to make out.

 Laura Screamed and everything went black.

  I didn’t even see who was attacking us.

WALTER

You didn’t see anyone?

BILLY

No sir.

WALTER

Do you remember hearing anything?

BILLY

No Sir.

WALTER

If you can remember anything, please let us know.

BILLY

I love Laura.  Please find her.

WALTER

We will do what we can.

Billy’s mom hugs him as the team walk out.

KYLE

Well, now what.

WALTER

I don’t know.  All we can do is put out feelers and see what we come up with.

HOLLEY

It’s been three days.  Can we get the FBI involved?

WALTER

I’ll give them a call when I get back to the office.  Kyle do we have all your notes?

KYLE

Yes, but I’ll check with Veronica when we get back.

  If there is anything else, we will send it right over.

DAY 4: More men, more money changing hands.

 

                                                                                                      MAN3

I’d like to have her at my place for a while

MAN2

Sold

Laura is taken to another location.

 

Laura is passed around from home to home for three months.  Ongoing search turns up nothing.

Kyle pulls up beside an old acquaintance on the street.  Bongo, as he is called recognizes Kyle and walks up to him.

BONGO

Hey Deeeetective.

What brings you down to the slums.

Kyle hands him the picture of Laura

KYLE

We’ve been looking for this girl.  She was abducted about three months ago. 

Do you have any information on her?

BONGO

Well, she does look familiar.  But I just can’t remember where I saw her.

Kyle reaches in his pocket and hand Bongo a wad of money.

BONGO

Oh, that’s right.  I remember now. 

I was working for these rich folks out in the Riverside area.

  Looks like the girl they took out of the car and took inside. 

She was being manhandled by the bodyguards.

KYLE

Thanks Bongo that helps.  Got an address?

Bongo scribbles down an address.

BONGO

Now Kyle, you know you didn’t get this information from me. 

But also, she probably won’t be there.  They move these girls out pretty fast.

KYLE

Ok, thanks BONGO, I’ll check it out.

Kyle gets on the phone,

KYLE

Walter, Got an address where Laura was seen being taken into a house.

WALTER

Is it a good source?

KYLE

Well, it was Bongo.

WALTER

Pretty thin.  You know he will tell you anything for a buck.

KYLE

I know, but that is all I have to go on.

WALTER

Well, check it out, but don’t do anything stupid.

KYLE

You know me.

WALTER

Yes, that is what I’m worried about.

Kyle calls Holley

KYLE

Where you at?

HOLLEY

At the office

KYLE

I’m swinging by to pick you up.

HOLLEY

Got a lead?

KYLE
Yes, it’s weak, but I want you with me.

HOLLEY

I’ll be ready.

Kyle swings by, pick up Holley and they head out to the house.  As they get to the house, the metal gates out front are closed.  They ring the bell.

ATTENDANT

Can I help you?

KYLE

I need to talk to the owner.

ATTENDANT

Do you have an appointment?

KYLE

No, but it involves a missing girl.  I’d rather not have to go get a search warrant.

There is a long pause and then the gates open.  They drive up to the front of the house.

Kyle and Holley get out of the car and are met by the owner.

OWNER

How may I help you?

KYLE

We have been informed that a young girl was brought here against her will.

  Have you seen this girl?

Kyle hands the picture to the owner.

OWNER

No, I’ve never seen this girl. 

And there has never been anyone held here against their will.

HOLLEY

How would you like it if your daughter

was abducted and held against her will?

OWNER

I wouldn’t know.  I don’t have any children. 

Now if that is all you have, then please leave.

The owner walks back into the house and Kyle and Holley just look at each other.

KYLE

Let’s go.

HOLLEY

But Kyle, shouldn’t we at least have a look around?

KYLE

He asked us to leave.  We could be arrested for trespassing.

  We need to go.

HOLLEY

Damn it.

 

They get into the car and drive off.

OWNER on the phone

Bill, the detective has traced the girl to here.  Get rid of her.

Bill hangs up and calls.

BILL

Larry, they have a trace on the girl.  Get rid of her.

Larry hangs up and dials.

LARRY

William, ditch the girl.

William goes into the bedroom where Laura is passed out.  He has his way with her once more.  She just lays there with her eyes wide open.  When he finishes he unties her, drugs her and wraps her in a blanket.  She is taken to the trunk of a car.  He then drives her until it is dark.  He opens the trunk and rolls her out of the blanket into the ditch.  He drives off.  Her hand is sticking up out of the ditch.  Cars pass by, all night long.  Then in the morning, a passerby sees the hand and pulls over.  He get on his phone.

PASSERBY

Yes, Police?  I have found a girl dumped on the side of the road.

DISPATCHER

Yes, Please give me the address.

She writes it down.  She then pushes the Microphone button.

DISPATCHER

I need a unit to this address.

She then calls an ambulance and dispatches them to the address.  The hospital takes her in.  No name, She is treated as Jane Doe.  A police officer walking by notices and recognizers her.  He calls Kyle.

OFFICER WEAVER

Kyle, Laura has been found and is at the hospital.

KYLE

We’ll be right there.

KYLE yelling at Holley,

Grab your things, Let’s roll.

They go out and get into the car.

HOLLEY

Whats up?

They found Laura.  She is alive and at the community hospital.

HOLLEY

Oh, my god.

As they drive, Holley calls Jim.

HOLLEY

They have found Laura.

JIM

Yes we know.  We are on our way over to the hospital.

HOLLEY

We will see you there.

Holley and Kyle go into the hospital.  Doctors and nurses are trying to calm her down.  She is screaming and crying.  Jim walks in.

LAURA

Daddy!

Laura starts crying again.  He mother hugs her.  Kyle starts to walk in and Holley stops him.

HOLLEY

Give them a minute.

After a while she is talking normally, the police and Kyle try to question her.

LAURA

I was taken from my front yard and tied up.

  I was taken to a house, taken upstairs, cleaned up and put in a party dress.

 Men bid on me.  The winner drugged me. 

That is about all I remember until I woke up here.

 How long have I been gone?

WALTER

About three months.

Laura again begins to cry.

KYLE

They must have kept her doped up.

 

HOLLEY

Jim, there is nothing else to do.  If she remembers anything, please let us know.

  We will continue to work on this until they are brought to justice.

 

Jim nods and Kyle and Holley leave.

 

The next week Laura is trying to readjust to her life back home.  She is also reluctant to leave the house.  The doorbell rings as she walks down the stairs, her mother answers the door.

WIFE

Hi Carl.

CARL

Hey, I understand you got Laura back.

Father walks into the room.

JIM

Yes, she was found dumped on the side of the road.

Laura walks down the stairs.  Carl notices her.

CARL

Glad to have you back.

Laura nods, and then turns to walk away.

JIM

I just regret letting her go out that night.

CARL

I make it a rule of life never to regret and never look back. (echo)

Laura turns around and glares at her uncle.  She knows it was him.
